AND we are back! Last week after our pet friendly stroll through Prague’s castle grounds and the adjacent little quarter, I left you on the banks of the Vltava River near the spot where Mom proposed to Dad. To continue our visit, I invite you to go up some steps, onto the world famous Charles Bridge and cross over to the other side with me. Charles Bridge It’s hands […]

The name “Prague” will forever conjure the image of a pet friendly fairy-tale landscape. To us, it will always be a city we love for not succumbing to the Napoleonic grid system thus providing us with hours of entertainment as we got lost in the winding and “directionally unpredictable” streets.  It will remain in our hearts a city full of hidden gems, of special places and enchanted memories.  […]

No matter where in the world we may be and especially in a big city; I keep an eye out for great pet friendly parks. In Prague I found a gold star winner: Petřín Hill.  What do I look for in a city park? Well obviously it has to be safe but beyond that I am in search of a good hike; something a bit challenging. It doesn’t have […]

It’s not every day that we sit down in our Ottawa appartment to Skype with beloved friends living all the way in Washington, DC. And what happened next? We never saw it coming. Not in a million years. We were completely floored when they surprised us by uttering the words: “Would you three do us the honour of being in our wedding party?” Instantly Mom squealed (she did. […]

The great thing about looking for a little pet-friendly place to rent in Prague is that there are options. Loads of options. A quick search in TripAdvisor, FlipKey or AirBnB results in hundreds of choices. I love that. It tells me ahead of time what I can expect culturally. The large number of pet friendly spots to choose from, told me that the Czech Republic was going to be […]

On a rainy morning in Prague, we rented a car to drive 2 to 3 hours south to the beautiful town of Český Krumlov. I was extra happy that day because after a week of flying solo with the bipeds, we were going to meet up with our dear friends Michaela and Jeremy, and their two Chi, Chloe and Oliver. They were in town for their wedding, to […]

  I rarely write about a specific museum. Normally I enjoy combining several stops in one post. I prefer to tell you about an entire town and what to visit there, always favouring the walking tour approach. For larger cities, I’ll even end up doing several walking tours because options are good! But there are exceptions, like the Magic Gardens in Philadelphia, and today’s post is one such […]

“Bone Church” — THAT was pretty much all the bipeds had to say to make me agree 100% with the idea of going to Kutná Hora. Plus it’s not like it was that far from Prague, our home base in the Czech Republic. So we hopped on a train and set out. Luckily, we encountered a helpful ticket master who told us that the little train that you […]

Writing this blog and keeping our promise to you, dear Reader, to report on pet friendliness we find in the world, keeps me focused when I sit down and pull my thoughts into something coherent to share with you. When I started thinking about my time in the Czech Republic, I was tempted to start big with my first instalment on Prague, but re-thought that approach and decided […]

HUGE announcement! She asked. He said yes! The bipeds are engaged! And it only took Mom TWO YEARS to plan this — THIS — perfect moment that took place a few weeks ago during our trip to Prague (September 14th to be exact). As travel bloggers you knew it would be during a travel spree right? But two years to plan a proposal? I guess it is true what they say: […]
